It has been a busy year since Space Coast Harley-Davidson in Palm Bay
Florida opened their doors. They recently wanted to thank all their
customers by having a party. Darby Koller who heads-up marketing and
promotion for the dealership, put on numerous events during the year but
she wanted this one to be special.

For starters she brought in the women builders “Gypsy” the first
Female Discovery Channel Biker Build-Off Winner, “Shorty” the worlds
First Female Bike Builder and “Athena”, a.k.a “The Vagabond Chickie”
from Dearfield Beach Florida.

As if that wasn’t enough she had the “Purrfect Angels” who put on a
biker fashion show and their dance routines through out the weekend.
They appear at motorcycle events all over the country and besides being
beautiful put on a really good show. They also pose for photos with
those in attendance like my buddy Jennings Wardlaw and others.

The Hooters Girls were doing a bike wash and having some fun with the
water hose from time to time. Not a bad show in itself.

Though the women were out in force, the men were not neglected
either. The Easyriders Teresi Dyno Drag Truck was on hand for those who
wanted to see how fast their bikes were, under safe conditions, while
not coping speeding tickets.

Chef Steve was cookin’ for the famous Big Bore Deli. There were
numerous other food suppliers also. Budweiser was the beer of the day
and there were plenty of non-alcoholic drinks available as well.
The Ride In Bike Show had a wide variety of classes and the winners
received trophies made by “Nicky Bootz” and distributed by the three
female builders often with hugs.

Southern Rock All Stars “Tribal Tongue”, Derrick and The Slammers while
the ever popular Doc Holiday took care of the DJ duties.
“Gypsy “and “Shorty” were also Co-Grand Marshals of the March Of
Dimes “Bikers For Babies Ride” on Sunday which was a 75 mile police
escorted ride and raised a lot of money for that organization.

Bonneville Sponsor, and Smitty, an engine guy forever.
I would like to thank all that helped make this event a success. For
those of you that do not know, this is my Home Town and I am Very Proud
of The Bikers and those who Support Them at events like this.
